An Additive to Improve Soil Remediation

The cultivation of crops can be somewhat of a risky business, with many aspects factoring into the equation, including location, pollution, climate and drought conditions, to name a few.

 Why Black Earth? Throughout history, farmers and gardeners have repeatedly relied on the benefits of organic products to improve soil conditions and crops during more cumbersome years. When underlying factors adversely affect a crop’s ability to produce, a soil additive is most often used to boost productivity. This is where Black Earth comes in.

Humic and fulvic acids are long proven aids to benefiting soil productivity, through such uses as improving water retention, soil texture and overall nutrients. Black Earth’s Humalite is a complex substance that is high in both humic and fulvic acids. In fact, all of our dry products boast ratios of at least 80% humic acid, an amount unsurpassed by any of our competitors.

Our humalite also comes from Alberta, Canada, where it’s cultivated naturally from the Alberta plains. As Alberta is one of the few places on Earth where black earth forms naturally, we’re able to produce our products with this highly effective consistency of humic acid.

The added benefit here is that not only are Black Earth products safe for the environment, but they’re also low in ash and toxic metals, a factor that aids farmers and horticulturalists alike. Black Earth Humalite is also a fertilizer enhancer and an animal feed supplement, making it safe for all living organisms.

Microorganisms and Soil Conditions

In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, humalite also aids in the growth of microorganisms—organisms which are vital to soil productivity and health. Though the overall family of microorganisms is quite wide, containing multiple varieties of bacteria, fungi, protozoa and plenty of bugs to go along with it, all microorganisms have one thing in common: They disperse numerous organic materials that in the end make up humus, which as we know, has a huge positive impact on the bio-chemical properties of soil.

The enhanced growth of microorganisms through Black Earth products accelerates the removal of pollutants, such as hydrocarbons, from the soil. If soil is contaminated, Black Earth products have the ability to improve soil conditions by breaking down digestible organics and improving the overall growth of plants and crops.

The Benefits of Using Black Earth 

Black Earth’s extensive applied research has proved time and again that humic substances provide great benefits to increasing soil productivity, plant nutrient uptake and the development of the root structure of crops.

By using Black Earth’s Humalite, soil organisms are allowed to reproduce, leading to more productive crops. And ultimately that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Having productive crops?

If you’ve been looking for a soil additive with high quality results, you need not look any further. Black Earth products come with the proven track record you need. After all, we’re not called Black Earth for nothing.
